answered Emo Mission doesn't appear


Recommended Posts

Hi Folks. Quick question--I have tried getting the PNG Emo Mission freeware. It downloads and installs  and appears in the Scenery Library just below the Orbx Library, but does not appear in the actual program place-selection list or on the map. This is true for both FSX Steam and P3D4. What am I doing wrong? Thanks.

Hey, Rodger.  I believe you have to go out and find those airstrips.  There was at one time a google map or kmz file of their locations, but off hand I don't know where that is located on the Orbx site.  Perhaps someone knows where to find it.

Thanks Stew. I do know that the mission is about twenty miles from Kokoda on a heading of 220, but when I flew that, there was no there there. Maybe I ought to be a little more thorough in looking?:huh::)

Its been a while, but as long as you installed Emo after AYPY it should be there

Maybe you can use this file, it can be imported into Plan-G:

Orbx PNG.csv 1.23 kB · 2 downloads

Tried to find it in FSX Steam. Did find the waterfall landmark but no Emo Mission. I ran the nearby slopes with a Stinson 5 low and slow, but no joy. APEO is properly below Tapini in the library. Will try in P3D4 tomorrow. Also found a 2015 Forum Thread "AYEO EMO Mission, How Do I Start?" which also worries this question. Will persevere. Stiff upper lip. What ho, eh?
